Animal in Oil, original.--James L. Smith, St. Louis, made two entries, and to both were awarded premiums. The painting, which took the first premium, Diploma and twenty five dollars, was the painting of a fine gray horse owned by the Messrs. Arnott, St. Louis. The horse, which is called "Pete," is well known, and the painting being true to the original, and also bearing the impress of artistical finish, was much admired.
